The Arc of Oswego County is a private, not-for-profit organization that has been a leader in the provision of services of individuals with disabilities since 1953. Our mission is to be a leader in the field of developmental disabilities, committed to meeting the needs of individual growth, productivity, and independence through education, advocacy and community participation.
We provide quality programs for children and adults with disabilities. Services include specialized training and therapy, training and consultation, senior day rehabilitation program, guardianship assistance, recreational respite services and more. All of our programs promote social, economic and personal independence. Our sister agency, Oswego industries, Inc., provides services to adults with disabilities: together, the two agencies create a comprehensive support system for individuals with disabilities in Oswego County.
The Arc of Oswego County will be the premier provider of services to persons with developmental disabilities. Our commitment, first and foremost, will be to individuals and their families, to provide choices, information, education and supports that will allow informed decisions and opportunities for growth, personal development and fulfillment.
